[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
Hello friends, after days of benefit of rain by my earth, I teach to this young Black-shouldered Kite (elanus caeruleus), that I could photograph a pair ago of months. He is the same one that I have in flight in another photo of my gallery. It observes it on this innkeeper and I managed to approach the sufficient thing to remove it so to me and as véis. The truth is that the light, the bottom and the innkeeper are very pretty, being natural, an old tree who surely where it will like to settle, although I have returned in several occasions and nothing of anything. I hope that you like.

Hola José Luis,
Beautiful capture. Gracias
Un saludo,

Wow! Gorgeous capture, great color, fine detail, supportive DOF and wonderful pose.

The brightness just below the eye might be toned down a bit but that is minor.

Kudos to you for a terrific photograph
